"I wrote a letter to Ryan [Murphy] asking if I can be in it, even though I wasn't even available to be in it," Harris told EW Radio. "To do one that involves any kind of freak, circus nonsense is going to be so unsettling to watch. Can't wait!"
Murphy, co-creator of the show, which is now entering its fourth season, wrote on Twitter, "@ActuallyNPH of course you can be on Freak Show! I have a role I think you'd love."
Harris won the 2014 Tony Award for Best Actor in a Musical for his performance in the title role of Hedwig and the Angry Inch.
